I run a daycare. I have crafts and foods every day that pertain to a theme for the month. Yesterday I tried a new one and I had to share it! I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie. Yum. I also make a delish Pumpkin Cream Cheese Crescent Roll* that is to die for. Really, anything sprinkled with pumpkin pie spice entices me. So, when I remembered a recipe that I had for Pumpkin Spice Play Dough, I just had to make it. Wow, it is fantastic. It really does smell great, and totally looks like you are playing with pumpkin pie. Awesome! We will be playing with this right up until Thanksgiving!
Here’s the super easy recipe:
2 C Flour
1 C Salt
4 tsp. Cream of Tartar
3 tsp pumpkin-pie spice (I did 4…cuz I wanted to!)
2 C Water
2 TBL Vegetable Oil
Red and Yellow Food Coloring (the more the better!)
Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Stir on low heat until mixture starts forming a ball and will pull away from the sides. Let cool. Enjoy.
Obviously you could eat this dough and not die, but with that much salt, I can’t imagine it would taste very good!
Easy Peasy Pumpkin Cream Cheese Crescent Roll Recipe:
Refrigerator Crescent Rolls
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Orange sugar or sprinkles
Take Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and unroll them. Spread Cream Cheese on them. I used to love Cream Cheese and would add a thick layer. Now my thighs are begging for a thinner layer, and that tastes great too! Sprinkle with Pumpkin Pie Spice (again, to your liking...my liking is a LOT). Then, roll them up and cook them as directed. For extra bling, sprinkle the tops with orange sugar or sprinkles. I actually do this last step to differentiate between crescent rolls with the pumpkin pie cream cheese filling, and those without (sadly some members of my family do not like cream cheese...what are they thinking?!)!
